paper

Living away from Louisiana for most of the year has really made me appreciate the things that I once took for granted about my home state. Today I’m putting the finishing touches on my Mardi Gras day costume (still deciding on a color for it), made from paper “flowers” from my installation at the Voodoo Ballerina Kingcake Soiree. I feel so lucky to live in such a  magical place, where its perfectly normal to spend hours working on a grand costume for a Tuesday morning in New Orleans.

Big Gas attacks Gasland

Shame on them.

This is not surprising really, considering what the Oil and Gas Industries have done/are doing to those who speak out against them down here in Louisiana…
